Overview

Overview

Bursa Malaysia is the frontline regulator of the Malaysian capital market and has the duty to maintain a fair and orderly market in the securities and derivatives that are traded through its facilities. As an integrated exchange, Bursa Malaysia also has the duty to ensure orderly dealings in the securities deposited with Bursa Malaysia, and orderly, clear and efficient clearing and settlement arrangements for transactions cleared and settled through its facilities. In furtherance of these duties, Bursa Malaysia has put in place a comprehensive and effective regulatory and supervisory framework to regulate the market and its participants, including the listed issuers and their directors and advisers, Participating Organisations, Trading Participants, Clearing Participants, Authorised Depository Agents and Authorised Direct Members.

In this respect, Bursa Malaysia has issued various sets of rules to stipulate the requirements that need to be met by the regulated entities either upon admission and/or on a continuing basis. It administers and monitors compliance with these rules and takes strict, prompt and objective enforcement action for breaches of these rules. Bursa Malaysia actively supervises the listed issuers and the brokers. It also undertakes surveillance over the trading activities in the marketplace.

Bursa Malaysia’s overriding objectives, in addition to discharging its statutory duties, are investor protection, transparency, high standards of conduct and governance, market integrity and that all relevant persons can participate in our market with confidence.

The regulatory functions are performed and managed by Regulation Functional Group which is helmed by the Chief Regulatory Officer. As a measure to ensure independence of the regulatory function, the Chief Regulatory Officer provides the Board with a regulatory report on a regular basis and the regulatory plan, which includes the regulatory budget, is approved by the Board.
